Chance encounter between friends leads to transplant

SAN DIEGO, Calif.

Louis Munoz ended up donating a kidney to his childhood friend.

Munoz and William Lynch had lost contact and hadn't spoken for years until they found themselves randomly seated next to each other at a San Diego Chargers football game.

The two got to talking and Lynch told Munoz that he needed a new kidney. Munoz got tested and he was a match. The successful surgery took place last October.

Lynch says his friend will now be a part of his life -- forever.
